  • Beginner Skills ClinicLast Updated On: 5/4/2013

    On Saturday, May 4, Bob Sughrue hosted a beginner mountain bike skills clinic. Over 15 riders came out, many of which were new to the foothills. Bob set up a terrific skills course in the parking lot complete with water bottle slalom, a teeter totter, and some obstacles to ride over. All of the riders took turns doing wheelies over one of the larger obstacles. Once everyone started feeling good about riding over large items, Bob lead the group to the dirt where they practiced steep descends into quick ascents across the bike path. The day ended with a tour of the playground where riders tested their pump track and single trak skills all while having a great time. Thank you Bob for setting up this clininc and encouraging all riders to join. Thank you to the volunteers that kept everyone safe and having a good time: Gary Bryant, James Foster, Ryan Brown, and Ernest Garcia-Diaz.
